Christmas Finishes

When all the gifts are opened,
And friends and family fed,
When things return to normal,
And you’re lying in your bed,
When shops offer their discounts,
Leave you spinning in your head,
Remember Christ our Saviour
Lies in his makeshift bed.

He came to offer all some peace
And grace, for all are lost:
A peace never seen before,
And grace without a cost.
His birth is an example –
Calm in a world rough tossed.
His death, too, an example,
As he embraced the cross.

His birth for us a prelude;
For this is why he came:
For when he hung covered in blood
He took upon his name
All our sins committed,
We will never be the same.
So, when your Christmas finishes
Still glorify his name!
